I know exactly how they do it. I’m no longer trying to figure it out. We’ve all seen this movie.

Yes, we've seen this movie.  An annual ritual, like I said.  So why don't you tell us what you figured out.

The Big10 has one good team, Maryland, and then a lot of assorted decent teams. I’m not sold on Penn State, Michigan and MSU both have had horrendous stretches, Illinois was playing good until they lost 4 in a row, OSU hadn’t beat a good team since early Dec before they beat Maryland on Sunday. Iowa is completely inconsistent. Perfect league setup for a flawed Wisconsin team to stay competitive. I would be completely unsurprised if the conference had nobody left the second weekend.

Makes our win stronger and knocks Arizona who is right around us on the s-curve. Double helpful!

I’m a fan of basketball after I’m a fan of MU.  But the big ten just beat each other up. They cannibalized their conference.  On any given day, they’ve shown, with the exception of northwestern and Nebraska,  any of the others can all advance to at least the 2nd round. Then you have probably 5-6 that are sweet 16’ers.  Maybe 2 elites but then it drops off.  Even Izzo good coaching ain’t gonna do it this year.

I think it’s Gonzaga, Baylor, and a few to be announced

It’s a very good league, the best in college basketball this year but it’s doubtful there is a national champion in the lot.  The league is truly representative of the sport for this season.

They could put 6 teams in the Sweet 16 or all of their teams could get bounced on the opening weekend.
Cooler.  20 Days.

You appear to have confused respect for love.  Try to get it straight. 
And then tell us what they do every damn year. You said you figured it out.

The Big East (country’s 2nd strongest conference) is very similar to the Big 10. At this moment, only Creighton appears to be a real contender. Both conferences have a bunch of good/not great teams. We might be surprised by which teams advance and which teams exit early in the tournament.

I agree, I'm saying the same.  It's a YOY pattern with Becky.  I wanna know why.

No.  Cal is over 100 spots lower in KenPom than the worst Big East team

Without being sarcastic, let me ask you a question: You do understand that every single day, numerous teams -- even those with Hall of Fame coaches -- lose games they "should" have won, right?

Without a doubt, they scored fewer points. I'm of the opinion that the team that scores fewer points should always lose.

I 100% understand it, what I'm trying to prove here is that teams do absolutely have "inexcusable" losses. People here seem to act like losing this game or that game is no big deal, but there ARE losses that are inexcusable. There isn't an honest Coach anywhere that wouldn't say the same thing.

Yes but they are inevitable so its goofy to overreact to one or two of them a year. You took it way to far with the prov loss. That's why it silly. Every team will lose a few games they shouldn't. That's the point. It's even worse now that Prov has played themselves into a tourney team.

Agreed. We could debate on whether the B10 or BE is better, but the overall demographics look very similar. One or two teams with decent shots to do some damage, a whole bunch of teams that will get in but probably be one or two and done, and a couple of teams that are at the bottom but better than bottom teams in many conferences.
